Marshals needed for the NYC Century Bike Tour!

TA NYC Century

Come Marshal for the NYC Century Bike Tour!

Transportation Alternatives need volunteer marshals on bikes or on their feet to help NYC Century riders navigate the route, negotiate tricky intersections, fix flats and find their way to the rest stops, first aid and bike repair stations. Marshals are also goodwill ambassadors, spreading the joy and excitement of America's only all-urban century! 


Riding marshals should be experienced cyclists with the ability to fix a flat tire. Advanced riders are encouraged to join the early morning ride to scout the route one last time before hitting the roads in full force. If you choose to join this team, you can ride all of T.A.'s 2016 tours for free! 

TA is offering marshal trainings throughout the month of August. First-time riding marshals are required to attend one of these sessions -- you'll be provided drinks and snacks as a thanks for coming! There are a few different marshal teams during the NYC Century Bike Tour, and you are encouraged to pick the one that fits your schedule, location and interests!

Find out more and register at or reach out to TA directly at if you have any questions.
